At the Masters, Koepka was in the penultimate group, and missed a makeable birdie putt to allow Woods to make bogey to win.

Now in the US Open, exactly the same thing happens, only it's Woodland instead of Woods.

I wanted Brooks to win. I’ll never see someone win 3 in a row in my lifetime.

What a chip by Woodland on 17, from the green no less. He deserves it...but damn. I wanted 3 in a row.

He still has the PGA he can do 3 in a row.

Not the same, since Hagen won 4 in a row.

Pitch out of the rough on 11

Approach on 14

Pitch on 17

Now putt on 18 for a win going away.

That was some round.

CONGRATS to the Woodland family on Father's day.

Congratulations to GW. Very very gutsy. Especially with BK breathing down his neck.

I have to say that this time and day, in the post Tiger dominance era there is not a more impressive player than Koepka.

Congrats to woodland.  Dude needs to get a look for Team USA, seems pretty unflappable to me under pressure

69

Two under

Yet that round was a historic round.

Excellent play.

Remarkable recovery shots.

Championship play like you just rarely see.

Just Amazing.

So did Woodland mean to hit that chip on 17 so hard off the downslope? I didn't notice it until I saw a couple of replays, but it hit the downslope between the two sections of the green and took a huge hop forward.

He can still win three in a row at the USO. Just has to start over. Wouldn't put anything past the guy.

Congrats to Woodland. It was just his week. Like I said, he's a very similar player to Koepka, he just doesn't have the major resume like Brooks has. Tournaments-wise, you could say he does.

Spieth had a good run there in 2015-16. Had a run of 5 majors where he went 1st-1st-4th-2nd-1st. And that 4th was one shot out of the playoff. Now comes the hard part for Brooks. He's been driving on adrenaline trying to prove doubters wrong and he's had an amazing run. Now he has to keep it going and try and win more majors and also win some PGA Tour events. Spieth had that hot stretch, too, but then lost the mojo.

Yes. There's a long way from that slope to the hole. And if he flew it farther, it still grabs but doesn't kick as hard, so it works out too.

Jeez, I would never try to hit a downslope like that. Too many variables. But I'm not a pro, and I don't play on greens like Pebble's.

Like I said, he could have landed it anywhere from there, to a bit short, to well long. He had a big area in which to land the ball.

Got it. As long as he lands it on or a bit past the downslope, he's fine. I wasn't thinking that. I was just thinking, holy crap, that took a huge first bounce.

    • That may be true, but the average amateur is unlikely to be better than 45% from a 140 yards.  And the pro can probably hit the same club or at worst one iron longer from the 200 yards in.  Most amateurs are hitting like an 8 iron or so from 140 and the pro can probably manage with a 7 iron from 200.  The pro is definitely better with a 7 iron than an amateur with an 8 iron. The reason the pro is better from 140 than 200 is probably because they are hitting a PW rather than say a 7 iron
    • You see this in other sports.   Anybody can coach great talent but it takes a good coach to get the best out of each and every player.
    • I may be a bit unfair to these coaches so I’ll admit that up front. But what I tend to believe is that many of these coaches that ‘got their name in the lights’ really lucked into it for the most part. They’ve taught hundreds of people before and nobody knew who they were. Now that definitely doesn’t define their level of quality. Not at all. But when a coach happens to score a player who is super talented and has the ‘it’ factor I can’t help believe that player was going to make waves regardless of his coach. Hank Haney got the majority of his notoriety from coaching Tiger. So did Sean Foley as did McCormick from Spieth. From the years of being on this thread I firmly believe Erik is every bit as good and better (Hank Haney) than these guys. I will agree that McCormick is a good coach as I’ve been told this by respectable people who are in the know. I just don’t think he’s anything so special that Spieth needs to remain with him.  At least not now. He needs renovation, not tweaking. I’d never heard of him before Spieth came to the stage and now he’s on commercials and pumps out dvd’s as an all time best instructor.  I think the talent of these golfers played a much bigger role in their success than the coaching they received from these guys. Just my opinion.
    • You know what I'm talking about.  That hole that eats your lunch every time you face it.  It may not even be a tough hole, but for some reason you can't seem to score well.   Mine is the opening hole on the Gold Course at Martin County Golf and Country Club.  It's a long par 5 dogleg left.  There's water halfway down, huge greenside bunkers, and several well-placed trees to punish any attempt at cutting the corner off the tee.  The rough slopes away steeply the whole way down the right side, often kicking your ball into the woods.  A bogey is my standard score.  I feel like I'm automatically going to be down a stroke right out of the gate. I've been playing that course since I was 12.  I'm 42 now.  Today, I reached the green in two for the first time in my life, then made birdie.  I couldn't believe it! Below are some short vids of me on my way to finally conquering this beast.  I'd love to hear about your trials with your nemesis hole.   And then the 3-wood, high draw to the green:
